The Illustrated Brief
Rondebosch Refined: 'Armani OpulenceHere the brief was to utterly transform a deadly dull cloakroom into a bold, dramatic and sexy space for visitors to use. This is after all the one room your guests are sure to spend time in. Why not make it utterly unique?
Enter Armani black and silver! The ceiling resembled a weetbix box so in order to create some ambiance and definition, we dropped the ceiling and studded it with star lights. One of the walls was emboldened by a plush black and silver wall covering. Instead of opting for the more obvious glass or marble finish, we went for the modern minimalist custom made ‘floating’ cantilevered basin and integrated stone shelf, which makes a stunning contrast with the elegant yet active design of the wall covering and black porcelain tile.
Rondebosch Refined: Kitchen & Entertainment AreaWhilst dramatizing the guest cloakroom, both the kitchen and the outside entertainment area were reshuffled and contemporized.
The cupboard doors received a revamp with all baskets, work surfaces, and cornicing remade and re-sprayed. The central island was reworked to suit their needs with caeser stone the preferred choice for the counter tops. The funky purple glass mosaic gave an instant lift to the splash back.
The pool area was transformed into a lovely focal point of contemporary space for entertaining and family relaxation. By moving the braai area closer to the kitchen and the seating/lounging section to the opposite side, the flow of this space was optimized making much better sense.
